Hey all,

I've been noticing a few new sign-ups recently who all seem to display a similar characteristic of signing up, sending a PM and then never contributing to the forum in the form of posts etc.

A bit of research has suggested that this might be spam related.

To prevent it, I have instigated a minimum number of posts limit before PMs can be sent.

If you have recieved any spam via PM recently, please forward it to me and I can deal with it appropriately.

Thanks,

MT

I have to admit that I joined the forum seeking information about disabled access at Jodrell Bank. Sent a PM to someone, who responded and really helped me out. I haven't yet posted on the forum proper but please bear in mind that not all people that join and then only PM are spammers!
